Mossel Bay organised its first ever sports festival in 2012. It was an immediate success, and, building on the successes of the previous years, Mossel Bay is continuing on this mission with its fourth annual Sports Festival from 1 October 2015 to 8 October 2015.
Together with the annual PetroSA marathon, which will take place on Saturday, 26 September 2015, and the 2015 U 15 Legends Iqhawe rugby tournament, that will be held in Mossel Bay from Sunday, 4 October to Thursday, 8 October 2015, Mossel Bay will have a lot to offer to sports enthusiasts in Spring this year.
The Point High KFC Schools Cricket Festival for under 19 teams, this year in its 18th year, will be another major attraction.
The PetroSA marathon will this year also double as the South African championship and it will be possible to see South Africa’s top marathon athletes as well as top-class international competitors in action.
The Festival will present an opportunity for local as well as visiting sportsmen and women to participate in events organised by different sports codes, and for those who are not active in sport to just have a lot of fun.
Because of the ideal sailing conditions in Mossel Bay, the Sports Festival has become synonymous with sailing regattas. Championship events will therefore again form an integral part of the Festival programme this year.
The programme will also include a touchies tournament with good prize money, a motorsport gymkhana, a soccer tournament, bowls, golf, darts, tennis, badminton, chess, bridge, lifesaving and many more.
The Moss Walk over 5 km, another huge attraction at previous Sports Festivals, continues to grow and will again take place on Saturday, 3 October 2015.
Make sure that you don’t miss the 2015 Mossel Bay Sports Festival.
